The mayor highlighted the symbology of the venue to criticize President Donald Trump's campaign slogan as a nostalgic trap and point out that "Nothing that includes the phrase 'again' can offer solutions" for the future.

According to the mayor's campaign, the place of the event had to be changed due to weather issues, since a snowstorm was predicted in this area of ​​the country.

Despite this, dozens of people who could not enter the old industrial warehouse to reach the maximum capacity allowed by local firefighters, defied the cold rain and subsequent incipient snowfall in front of a giant screen placed in one of the parking lots.

"More than a little daring"

A small group of less than a dozen supporters of President Donald Trump with signs saying "Let's make America great again" was also gathered in front of the building, but they dispersed before the ceremony began and we journalists could talk to them. to know his criticism of the now candidate.

One of the police officers who guarded the facilities told Univision Noticias that "it was understandable that they left, considering the cold that he is doing" (about 30 degrees at that time of afternoon).

Last minute decision or not, the place is doubly symbolic. It is an area full of old industrial buildings of red bricks, many of them in evident state of abandonment, of companies that represented the industrial power of the region until half a century ago.

The area has been renamed the Renaissance District because of the plan developed by a private initiative in coordination with the city and universities to adapt many of these buildings to new technology and service companies.
